Recently, The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) claims that our prime minister’s wife Rosmah Mansor had spent RM24 million (US$ 6 million) on handbags, clothes, shoes and jewellery.
The report said that she spent that amount of money from 2008 and 2015 based on new documents reviewed by the WSJ.
“Newly revealed documents show (Rosmah) has racked up at least US$6 million in credit card charges in recent years – despite having no known source of income beyond her husband’s salary.
“She is the only child of schoolteachers, hasn’t had a regular paying job in years and her husband, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, is a longtime bureaucrat with an annual salary of US$100,000,” says the WSJ report.
Beginning of this year, WSJ reported that Rosmah spent about RM4 million at an Italian branch of Swiss-owned jewellery store De Grisogono and about RM500,000 at Chanel in Honolulu, Hawaii.
